Justice Sutherland Finally Gets Some Respect

From Justice Scalia’s interview with New York Magazine:

“You know, for all I know, 50 years from now I may be the Justice Sutherland of the late-twentieth and early-21st century, who’s regarded as ‘He was on the losing side of everything, an old fogey, the old view.’  And I don’t care.”

    In this recent interview, Justice Scalia referenced his “courage” in a matter before the Court involving Dick Cheney. It’s time for a revisit to DeNovo for my comment on Justice Scalia and Dick Cheney:


    In that duck blind
    Lady Justice unveils
    Her traditional blindfold
    For these bonding males:
    Scalia and Cheney,
    Shotguns at attack,
    Taking aim at Justice,

    Perhaps Scalia may be considered closer to Chief Justice Taney.
